Chrome for Kids with Special Needs

Help me give my students a Chromebook so that they can access educational software that will help them close gaps in their learning.

My Students

Our school is in a town of less than 20,000 and all of our students get free lunch. Our district has a great technology center where my kids have learned valuable skills in construction, auto tech, welding, and more.

My students are great kids that happen to have learning difficulties.

As students with special needs, all of my kids have learning gaps. They all need individualized instruction to close the gap between where they are and where they need to be academically. Please help them continue to close their academic gaps, so they will be ready for college and careers after graduation!

My Project

My students need a Chromebook so that they can access educational software that will help them close gaps in their learning. There is a web-based computer program that my students can use that will create assignments tailored to their individual learning needs! It is just not possible to customize lessons this well without a computer program. I can make worksheets, but the students find the computer much more engaging! I have seen great gains with this program and would love for all my students to be able to use it on a daily basis. Individualizing education through technology makes a world of difference for my students.
